Okay, here is the little bookmarklet -- it's pretty limited, but it serves my own laziness, so I share it FWIW and if anyone has the time and wants to upgrade it, go for it and drop me a comment and I'll (ha ha) signal boost any new versions!
holy crow, it works
GO INSTALL THIS MOFO RIGHT NOW AND YOU CAN SEMIREBLOG/SIGNAL BOOST ON DREAMWIDTH.
Henceforth, "Door" refers to "New Door," not the old machine that is broken. It is latest Debian.
Door has three network cards: eth0 going to cable modem, eth1 going to fixed IP LAN segment, eth2 going to DHCP LAN segment. Door is running both DNS and DHCP servers.
Door can see everything in the world, on all cards. Complete functionality.
DHCP side can see everything in the world, on all cards. Complete functionality.
Fixed IP machines can all see Door (including its DNS services), and each other, and talk to the DHCP side, but can talk to nothing living out on eth0.
tcpdump on Door shows Door handing off ICMP packets on eth0, so that direction seems okay.
I am not seeing ACKs coming back to Door on eth0 from google.com but I can't be sure they aren't doing something tricky and my filters are confused.

Door is 18.104.22.168 (on eth0), 22.214.171.124 (on eth1), 192.168.1.1 (on eth2). 126.96.36.199 is the modem. 188.8.131.52 is a network to eth1.
Anybody know wtf?
eta: The router - in addition to not showing door any ACKs for anything from .42 and .43 - is sending out a lot of ARP packets looking for 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11, and I'm starting to think it won't talk to a gateway box in the fixed-IP range. I try to add .41 as a gateway address for .42 and .43 and it refuses, saying illegal LAN address. SUPER RAGIFICATION ENGAGED.
eta2: And the new problem is that the PS4 won't pick up the gateway information from the Linux-based DHCP server. It will pick up an address! It's also not getting the DNS server number either. Why? Fuck if I know, everything else does it right.
The base style REQUIRED is Neutral Good. That's the default "new user" style and is why I went at that one first. This is an extension (and something of a rewrite) of that style, entirely in CSS. It fixes many bugs on desktop, and gives you a functional mobile view of your reading list and your journal. It makes NO attempt to address system style issues on mobile.
The CSS overlay which you need to copy and paste into the "custom css" pane of the advanced style customisation interface is here:
This will ALSO get you Navbar 2, the upgrade of Navbar I've been running for a while. (Yes, you can still disable it.) It will NOT get you Navbar 3, so you won't have the mobile version you see in the screenshots in my previous post. But the navbar will be better looking on desktop, and no worse on mobile.
THIS IS AN ALPHA RELEASE, only tested so far against Safari and Firefox. Please report bugs.
(Except for the one where replying to an extant comment in single-entry view causes iOS to autozoom still. I know about that one and I'll fix it. But other than that. Comments are particularly rough at the moment tbh.)
eta: Version 0.7 alpha replaced with version 0.8 alpha, same link. Abovementioned bug fixed, several other bugs fixed, more cleanup, vitally improved handling of cascading comment threads on mobile, a few other things.
(The link is temporary but it's fine for now, it's to a dropbox directory.)
These versions can't be done with custom CSS on the existing platform, they require actual code changes in the back end. But as far as I can tell, it should all be UI code changes, pretty simple stuff.
Some functionality changes, in addition to a few new links:
- getting rid of dropdown-plus-button to trigger a view reload on the reading view filter, and just having the dropdown selector do it directly
- prev message/next message arrows (when in single-post views)
- prev page/next page arrows (when in journal or reading page views)
I've asked whether the style selector needs to be a set of top-level links or whether it could also be an action-on-selection dropdown, like reading view filter. Right now I'm showing it the old way.
Anyway, I don't really consider these really final but they do accomplish the general task of dividing into three consistent groups (user/login, current location, exploration) and adding some basic functionality (like prev/next) that really is kind of implied by "navbar," and so on.
The background gradient is just the standard system gradient and could be replaceable with anything.
eta: My thoughts are on mobile are that the three cells remain, but one is displayed at a time, and the other two are reached by swiping. Default to the middle pane, simplify the relationship permutation text for space, display a few fewer options perhaps.
eta2: Yeah, I may've gone a little nuts. Here's a run at mobile view mockups. 640x60 because iPhone 5 is 640 pixels on the short axis and Dreamwidth likes things 60 pixels high. Stupid science-related memetic disorder.
eta3: One bit of feedback I got from someone who does this regularly is that having Help on the far right is an industry standard, so I need to swap "Help" and "Home" in desktop. Also, despite the lack of space for it, I need some kind of visual indicator of swipe on the mobile bar (which I knew but was kind of hoping I'd get away without), which means we're talking chevrons for that since that's well understood.
eta4: This is getting long, so a new post: Trending tags.
Hm, does this work?
aw yeah 100% works
(works on dreamwidth anyway, probably not lj, sorry, but the link at top should work regardless)
(ps: anyone seeing this on lj, i uploaded a pharah icon but only on dreamwidth ^_^ )
I have disabled automatic payments and the Livejournal echos of my blog will degrade to 'free' status when the current paid status expires in several months. I have locked down comments as completely as I can without deleting/hiding all previous comments made in the past; even if it still lets you try, please do not comment on Livejournal. (You can use your Livejournal account to comment on Dreamwidth, however.) I have also disabled participation in ratings, which is too bad since I was a top 250 journal at this point - though that is far more about being a small pond than being a big fish. I have removed all references to following me on LJ on band-related sites, and so on.
And as you can probably tell, I have clicked "accept" on the TOS to be able to post this message and resume crossposting from the band blog and Dreamwidth. Most of my posts will violate TOS. That is intentional. If LJ management wants to take action based on that, so be it; assume my livejournal could vanish at any time.
I am on Dreamwidth at solarbird.dreamwidth.org and you are encouraged to follow me there.
Which is a damn shame, even if I've been expecting it since the sale to SUP. I was reading LJ when Brad was still running it out of his dorm room. But, well, all good things.
Tho' I guess in this case Verizon is in there too, lashing them together.
Fuck, this means Verizon will now own Tumblr. ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻
"US internet firm Yahoo is being acquired by American telecoms giant Verizon Communications for nearly $5bn (£3.8bn) in cash.
Yahoo will be combined with AOL, another faded internet star, which Verizon bought last year."
So we came up with a couple like “a vexation of douchecanoes” and “a wankerage of douchecanoes” and also along the way “an enragement of meninists.”
But I really think more Tumblr words need collectives and also can anybody top vexation for douchecanoes because I think that’s pretty good.
SUPERB P0WNERSHIP is the phrase of the day. Zoe Quinn has been dealing with a misogynist campaign against her for months, and, whelp, guess who has been infiltrating 4chan’s chat rooms and logging the shit out of all of the entire campaign’s ops room? Oh yeah. That would be Zoe.
Oh, her angry ex-boyfriend? He’s in the logs too, helping coordinate harassment. Hey, look, a revenge campaign for breaking up with him! SMILE FOR THE CAMERAS, DOUCHEBAGS! There’s even video. This is epic destruction.
If you have no idea what this is about, it’s about misogyny in gaming, and an ongoing campaign to force women out of gaming, focusing on several specific people, one of whom is Zoe Quinn. You can get a bit of a summary here, if you like.
eta: Judging from the h8r reblogs on Tumblr and the anonymous asks I’ve got, it looks like the attempt at “defence” here is, “It’s all out of context!” Hey, pro tip: only cite context when it actually helps your case. Unlike here. Where it doesn’t.
I do not have enough headdesks or facepalms in my world to resolve this conundrum.
We’re in the comment period for the new FCC regulations which destroy Internet network neutrality. This may seem like an esoteric issue to you, but it’s not. It’s a core infrastructure question: whether you have to pay more to actually get your network traffic delivered. If you’re completely unfamiliar, here’s John Oliver talking about it in a funny but accurate way.
Gizmodo has step-by-step instructions on how to use the FCC’s comment form. I’ve filed my comment/complate; go file yours, even if it’s really short. There’s enough money on both sides of this that we have that little window of opportunity where public commentary can just maybe matter.
Is that cynical? No, it’s realistic. Take advantage of these opportunities when they appear. And go file that comment.
I have triumphed over the Open Sources and have made the nvidia GT520 driver work. I am now running a new kernel along the way, but hey. I also discovered bugs in Xorg -configure, as well as the nvidia configuration tool, and it only took 11 hours.
I can also now build the latest 3.2 Linux core, but that’s just kind of a side effect.
And this is for the official nvidia driver. Don’t believe me? Here are the instructions on how to install it, from nvidia themselves.
They do tell you that you have to have a full development environment and sources and headers for your kernel. They don’t tell you their driver doesn’t work with the realtime kernel and will fail without error. (Or panic your machine – one of those, depending.)
So will the open-source drivers, by the way. That’s fun.
Honestly, figuring that “this will always fail silently forever except when crashing your machine despite what the build instructions say” part out was the biggest hurdle. There’s a patch you can apply for the 3.4 downstream realtime kernel, but that’s even more out of phase with the rest of Ubuntu 12.04LTS than my previous custom realtime kernel was, so, yeah, no.
RANDR still fails so the GUI for monitor preferences still crashes if you try to run it, but I don’t use that anyway and I think that’s because I’m running Xinema mode – it was true for my previous card setup to. Both monitors started individually run RANDR and the GUI just fine.
“Ready for the desktop” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA sobs
(The Windows install was more a matter of “here’s the driver” “yup that’s a driver” and “no I want this monitor on the right” “okay” and done. DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO GET ME TO SING THE PRAISES OF WINDOWS?! I mean goddamn.)
But it’s all working. Anyone playing Elder Scrolls online?
Remember Mine to Love, that album I co-engineered last year at Supervillain Studios, and ended up playing on too? Leannan Sidhe’s second album? It’s finally out! It came out today! I didn’t know! SURPRISE!
I’ll post more about it tomorrow, but my favourite song on the album (which I’m not even on) is King of Elfland’s Daughter, which isn’t streamable because of copyright reasons. Just go buy it, it is worth your 99¢, trust me here.
Here’s a player for the entire album other than that track:
